The Seward County Community College/Area Technical School Library is proud to present the traveling exhibit “Lincoln in Kansas.” The exhibit details Abraham Lincoln’s lone visit to Kansas in 1859 and the lasting influence his trip had on the Sunflower State.
In December 1859, Lincoln came to Kansas campaigning for the presidency. He visited several towns in northeast, including Leavenworth and Atchison during a week-long visit. The exhibit also chronicles his life and legacy from a young lawyer to his debates with Stephen Douglas up until his untimely and tragic death in 1865. “Lincoln in Kansas” was produced by the Kansas Historical Society and is part of the Kansas Interpretive Traveling Exhibits Service.
The exhibit is open to the public for the entire month of April. Regular library hours are 7:45 a.m.-10 p.m., Monday-Thursday; 7:45 a.m.-4:45 p.m., Friday; and 1-9 p.m., Sunday.
